Wowza, these babies came out perfect! Will def do again!

Cherry Cobbler Muffins are a delightful twist on the age-old comfort dessert, bridging the sweet nostalgia of summertime picnics with the cozy charm of morning teas.

Cobbler itself is a testament to the ingenuity of early American settlers, who adapted their cherished European fruit desserts using the ingredients they had in this new world.

In my own kitchen, where the wooden spoons are almost as aged as the recipes I cherish, I often find myself whipping up these muffins when I want to treat my grandchildren to a taste of our shared heritage.

The tartness of cherries, swaddled in a tender muffin crowned with a buttery streusel topping, calls to mind the stories of our ancestors finding sweetness in the simplicity of farm life.

Cherry Cobbler Muffins are perfect for those looking to infuse their baking repertoire with a dash of Midwestern soul and a sprinkle of homespun history.

Cherry Cobbler Muffins are splendid all on their lonesome, but to elevate them to a true feast for the senses, I recommend serving them warm with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

For an afternoon treat, pair them with a pot of English breakfast tea or a robust cup of your favorite coffee blend.

Cherry Cobbler Muffins

Servings: 12 muffins


– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 3 teaspoons baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 egg, lightly beaten
– 1 cup milk
– 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries, pitted and chopped

For the Streusel Topping:
– 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
– 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened


1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line a muffin tin with paper liners or generously grease each cup.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the 2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

3. In a separate bowl, combine the beaten egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until well incorporated.

4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until they are just combined—take care not to overmix.

5. Gently stir in the chopped cherries until they’re evenly distributed throughout the batter.

6. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.

7. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, and cinnamon for the streusel topping. Cut in the softened butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

8. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the muffin batter in each cup.

9. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

10. Allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Variations & Tips:

– If you don’t have fresh cherries on hand, well-drained canned cherries or other fruits like blueberries or peaches can offer a delightful variation.

– For those who fancy a nuttier crunch, fold in a half-cup of chopped pecans or walnuts into the streusel topping.

– Ensuring not to overmix the muffin batter will keep your muffins delightfully tender.

– If using frozen cherries, there’s no need to thaw them; simply toss them in their frosty state to prevent your batter from becoming too wet.

These Cherry Cobbler Muffins encapsulate the heartwarming flavors of tradition, with a gentle reminder that sometimes, the simplest things in life can offer the deepest joys.

Bake a batch, and watch as they become part of your own family’s tapestry of memories.
